Dillo is the standard light-weight GUI browser.  It's GTK1.2-based,
so you may want to try xfce (not xfce4, which is GTK2-based).

Like dillo, xfce is based on GTK 1.2, so is pretty light-weight.

BTW, how much RAM do you have?

296,443 sq mi (767,787 sq km) are needed for 6 billion people to
live at the same population density as Manhattan, New York.
That is ~ Arizona or Nevada.
Alternatively, that ~ double the size of Japan or Zimbabwe
